Derby signing Villa aiming to match Tevez impact

New Derby County signing Emanuel Villa has vowed to make a big splash this season.

Striker Villa, 25, said: "I came here to try and get the side out of the relegation zone. I signed a three-and-a-half year contract and I was never told by the club 'You have to save us or go.'

"You look at what Carlos Tevez did for West Ham and it was impressive.

"I hope I can save Derby and leave my mark in England for ever."
